Happy Friday y’all! So I haven’t made good on my promise to post more during this last Spring season. I’m trying….I skipped May entirely. Like I said in my Spring sign-up….I’m reading, just not writing many reviews which sucks for me because I’m currently sitting at *cough* 60 *cough* reviews to write. But that’s not what today’s post is about 🙂 #COYER is one of my favorite reading challenges, mainly because of the community and interactions I’ve had with other bloggers. It’s a fun place to be a reader. #COYER is hosted by Berls & Michelle @ Because Reading. Summer season started July 1st and ends October 31st. You can sign up here.
Format doesn’t matter anymore. You can still read your eBooks and Audiobooks, but now you can also read physical books.
Price doesn’t matter anymore. They can be free, they can be $50. They can be Kindle Unlimited, borrowed, library etc.
Announce your participation! This can be a blog post (or if you don’t have a blog – Facebook, Twitter, Google+, Goodreads, etc.) If you want to list books you would like to read, that’s great, but not necessary. The point is to let everyone know you’re committed to COYER Summer, maybe share some goals, and help spread the word. Not sure how to do your post? Check out this example from a previous COYER.
Link up! Link that post (not just your blog homepage) to the linky Michelle will share June 24th (TODAY).
Review & Link Reviews! Your review may be on your blog, Goodreads, etc. Link the review to the Review Linky (the same linky as Winter and Spring, but Michelle will start pulling winners after Spring reviews). When you post your review to the linky use the following format: Your Name @ Blog (if applicable): Book Title (e.g., “Michelle @ Because Reading: Twilight”).
Follow & share reviews on Twitter. We’re going to try and use twitter a lot more this year (like we used to). Use #COYER on your posts and look for tweets with the hashtag.
Visit Each Other, Chat & Have Fun!
During the Spring semester, I challenged myself to read 20 books. I managed to read 26 books* during the four months even with the stricter rules. So with Summer rules being more lax, any format any price, I think I’m going to challenge myself to 30 books during this season. My main goal remains the same: hanging out with fellow bookaholics and sharing some reads. You can follow my progress below or keep up with me on Goodreads.
*My progress bar below is lower currently than what I’ve read because I’m behind reviewing….
